Custom Pool Design & Build
The backyard, which at 110 feet by 175 feet is twice the size of a typical Toronto city lot, is an extension of the main home, a new residence in a French-country style. “Each component of the entertainment center is like a room within a room. The indoor and outdoor spaces flow into one another.
The endless-summer pool, whose concrete walls and floor are heated hydronically. The pool, which is entered via long steps with shallow treads inspired by the elegantly sleek designs of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, was sited so the sun’s rays play upon its multi-color blue-grey 1-inch by 2-inch glass mosaic tiles. It’s finished with Pebble Technology’s, “Pebble Brilliance” and is surrounded by a deck made of Canadian ash wood and Indiana limestone.
An in-floor cleaning system and ozone and UV sanitation components, coupled with an automatic chemical feeder, make it virtually maintenance free, a true luxury for year-round use.
The four-seasons cabana, which is 17 feet by 25 feet and fronted by panoramic folding doors, is designed to be in the same style as the home. Made of Canadian Douglas fir, it contains a kitchen, a bathroom, a bar, a limestone fireplace, a sound system and a television set. It has heated floors, a heating system and air conditioning.
